top oggray and one moment one area is secure and others are not as secure. we know cities such as san diego and el paso count themselves having made great improvement and one might use the term operational control, because there are border stations. we know there are 1,993 miles of border, 651 miles of fencing and one might make the argument that the unfenced area is less secure. i would argue against that. one of the things that we need to ensure that we allow the border patrol to do is to advise us of how they believe using the right resources they can effectuate a secure border. but it is always moving. one of the issues that should be prominent in this such as 2004 in a member of this committee, we provided the answer to the original request by the border patrol and that is equipment. that was the year we presented all the helicopters, all of the jeeps, the lap tops, the night goggles and enhanced equipment. we know that those kinds of resources are not the only answer to border security. what i would like to see is to match your outcomes with the use of new technology, but tament

the second anniversary of their uprising against bahrain's king. protests are taking place in numerous cities across the country to mark what has been described as the longest-running uprising of the arab spring. daily demonstrations for the past two weeks have called on u.s.-bought monarchy to address widespread human rights abuses. at least 87 people have died at the hands of security forces since 2011, and thousands more have been injured. pressure is growing for the obama administration to consider relocating the u.s. navy's fifth fleet from rain in order to push for more accountability on promised reforms. this week the government held reconciliation talks with opposition parties in the first time in more than a year. a >> for more we're joined by bahrain activist maryam al- khawaja. her father is abdulhadi al- khawaja and has been jailed since the government's crackdown. she served as the acting president of the brain center for human rights ever since the group's head nabeel rajat was a arrested and jailed. the group has just published a new report titled "two years of debts and detent

advantage of it, without unduly exposing it to our adversaries. let me move on to private city and civil liberties. anytime you're talking about sharing the information, sharing information with respect to cybersecurity, you have to be conscious of privacy and civil liberties and you have to make sure those are protected. that has been a priority of the administration and it continues to be so. so, while there are perhaps fewer concerns in the executive order because the focus is on sharing information outward, we have established a robust, oversight regime and in particular we have highlighted the fips. that is the government speak, right? if i don't insert an acronym every two or three minutes it is just not fun. the fips are the fair information practice principles. these date back to the 1970's when they were developed dealing with health records. essentially it is what are the principles you need to use in considering privacy with respect to information? so we think it's important we establish these as a one of the principles that we're going to follow with respect to sharing inform
a city in shelby county. we don't need the voting rights act. as a result of section two litigation they created council districts. a black representative was elected for 20 years. suddenly, as a result of the redistricting, they reduced the black population from 70% to 29%. they don't pre-clear it. they go ahead with the election. the justice department has to do an enforcement action to stop them from undermining the minorities to elect. it happened in 2008, not 1965. >> this is not ancient history. bar brarks i'm going to give you the last ten seconds because i know you have a call to rally to protect voting rights happening on the steps of the supreme court. >> the civil rights community because of cases being held are heard on february 27th, this coming wednesday. they have called for people around the country to come and to show their support for the voting rights act and not surprisingly people are interested, very determined. we understand what's at stake here. as americans, we know that the fight here is opened a future to this country. it's over weather or not we are going
like in the district with the college access program and city bridge, etc., there are certainly opportunities around yes which allows kids who graduate from certain cities to have their full college education paid for. again, what some on the panel have all said is how do we scale and replicate these to a far greater degree. in d.c. if you graduate from a high school, public or private, we essentially will subsidize, the taxpayers will, your going to any state college in the country and getting in-state rates. so lots of different strategies either to pay for school or to drive down costs, and i think probably lots more information needs to be disseminated but also leadership in your respective communities and what you can drive. taking some of those good examples whether it's city bridge or college access fund or the s.t.e.m. scholarship program in washington state, whatever, these are clearly doable with the right set of players and stakeholders coming together. >> yeah. that's absolutely right. we have time for, actually, one more question. so -- >> good morning. i am neil is
popular. but he does come across sometimes as the ultimate nanny mayor. nanny state nanny city, if you will. i mean remember, he's the guy that said no smoking in the bars and restaurants. no smoke even outside -- have to keep a certain distance away of bars and restaurants. he banned msg. he made the restaurants put their calorie counts on the menus and he's the guy most recently said you can't buy any soda larger than a 16 ounce drink. right? so all of that kind of stuff yeah people say he's kind of gone too far. by the way i think those are all good measures. should the government be doing that? probably but it's still a pain in the ass, let's say. on guns, he has really stood up, tall and straight! i say that for a man who's probably only about five foot tall. he has been great. so he just got tired of the fact -- he's long been a supporter of tough gun control measures and tough gun safety measures. but he got tired of the fact and frustrated when there were so many politicians who might want to do something about gun control but were afraid to because of the nra and the political

of the inner cities, the towns. i live in a well-known mennonite area, and they are coming up here. why? pennsylvania welcomes them with open arms, will not turn them in to immigration, and i will tell you one thing -- it will lead to either a race war or a revolution. host: mark, we got your point. let's get your response from deepak bhargava. guest: that call illustrates that there are deep anxieties about immigration and the changing face of america. in a few short years this will be a color nation. part of the republican stance is shaped by the election results were an overwhelming number of latinos voted for the president. there clearly is no path for a political party that is not willing to speak to the needs and concerns of the entire population. the anxiety that you see, we see younger americans much more supportive of a path to citizenship, older americans less willing to see that happen -- this is part and parcel of the change we are going through as a country. the president's point, that we cannot think of this as them against us is critical. we are all american, this is part
of the largest cities and in some smaller independent operators in smaller cities. a good part of the traffic has been people who stream it online, and that is a pretty dedicated following. in fact, with the very large online content, a good percentage of that comes from the united states. there is an appetite, clearly. how much of that will translate to a cable channel again where some of these folks are dedicated online streamers' is a challenge, but we hope we can provide interesting and freshen up content and have some people cross over. host: how will the recent purchase expand the american audience? who will you be able to reach now? >> -- guest: it is an estimated 50 million viewers. obviously it is a great leap forward and a great deal. one of the things we fought for years was distribution in the americas. this just opens some eyeballs to us, and we hope it will give people a chance to see our coverage, to sample it for those who have not seen it, and again, provide a platform for the core audience we already have. host: it is a 24-hour global news network carried in places like new york
met you. >> that is how we met each other many years ago unfortunately. new york city financial crisis in the mid '70s, there was a major investigation. congressional investigation and securities & exchange commission investigation of standard & poor's at that point, correct. >> absolutely. i just started right when that was happening. >> is this biggest case since then? >> yes. absolutely. >> there we go. guys, back to you. melissa: charlie gasparino, thanks so much. interesting stuff. lori: let's check markets for you. nicole is on the floor of the stock exchanges. looks like the dow is providing a little bit of a reassistance. >> sitting on level of 13,999. that's true. it is a psychological level. today at highest point we were at 14,006. we were hovering around all these levels. bulls are happy we didn't give back the gains we've seen. dow component disney will be one to watch. we watched hit all-time high after all-time high. it is up 3/4 of 1% over last 52 weeks. disney has been a great performer up over 52%. chipolte, aflac, zynga, cme group, bank of america going to a buy from
